This prize is awarded in memory of Prof Richard Shore, the much-missed former Vice-Chair of the Mammal Society.
As well as being an outstanding scientist, Richard was an inspirational colleague, renowned for supporting and encouraging other people to make a difference for wildlife conservation. This award will therefore be presented annually to someone who has gone the extra mile for Britain’s mammals. Perhaps they have initiated a conservation scheme, campaigned for the protection of mammals, been a stellar fund-raiser, or have worked tirelessly to collect mammal records.
Nominations should be made by noon on 1 November 2021. The nomination should summarise in not more than 250 words the achievements of the nominee and the difference they have made to mammal conservation and/or the Mammal Society.
The contact details of two referees who are familiar with the work of the nominee should be provided.
Please email your nomination to email@example.com
The winner of the award will be formally announced at the Mammal Society’s conference 2022, where there will be a presentation of a commemorative trophy.
